Life isn’t about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw.
Like many people who came of age in the 70s when I left high school I set out to find myself. I looked for myself at college in my majors. I looked for myself at summer jobs. When I dropped out of college 2.5 years in I looked for myself in a variety of short term jobs and short stints at various other colleges. In everything I did I found bits of myself but never really found the thing that jumped up and said “here you are”.
Over a long journey, which I will explore over time and in various ways in this blog, I came to realize the truth of my opening quote. One does not find one’s self. One makes one’s self. I invite you to join me on this continuing journey of self creation.
Well Come, people.
